Dutasteride/Tamsulosin Drug Information

If you have an enlarged prostate (also known medically as benign prostatic hyperplasia, benign prostatic hypertrophy, or BPH), your healthcare provider may prescribe dutasteride/tamsulosin (JalynTM). This medication is a combination of two drugs and works by shrinking the prostate and improving urination.
 
This medication comes in capsule form and is taken once daily. It is important to take your dosage with food (about 30 minutes after a meal) and at the same time every day. Dizziness, impotence, and a decreased sex drive are some of the possible side effects of this drug.
 
It's important to review the safety information for dutasteride/tamsulosin with your healthcare provider before taking this drug. This medication may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as liver problems, low blood pressure, or any allergies) or if you are taking any other types of medicine.
